Dr. Liz White Presents: Burrowing Owls of Marco Island
Marco Island is home to over 390 sites that the Florida Burrowing Owls call home and has the second largest urban population of burrowing owls in the state. Audubon Western Everglades Owl Watch Program monitors these sites each year during nesting season, which is generally the end February to end of May, but now monitors the sites year round to help protect this State Threatened species. Dr. Liz White will talk about our upcoming season and incredible statistics on this unique urban population. Tune in!

Dr. Liz White Rose
@University of Florida
Dr. White Rose was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN. She attended Skidmore College where she received a B.A. in Environmental Science in 2008. After graduation, she moved around the country, following wildlife field technician positions until beginning graduate school in 2012. She received her M.S. from the University of Florida in 2014, where she studied the effects of vegetation structure on the anti-predator behaviors of Florida Scrub-jays. She decided to stay at UF and pursue her Doctorate studying Florida Burrowing Owls. Her dissertation examined the biological differences between urban Burrowing Owls and populations breeding on rural cattle ranches, and the behavioral mechanisms that allow this species to exploit developed areas of Florida. She will graduate with her PhD in December 2020. She currently lives in Gainesville with her husband, dog, and chickens.
